ACUPUNCTURE

Chinese Medicine is an ancient system that utilizes many different modalities including acupuncture, cupping, massage, herbal medicine and other techniques that are intended to positively influence the flow of energy or qi in the body.  When the body feels pain and discomfort it is a sign that the qi is blocked or unhealthy in some way.  Using tiny needles, tuning forks, massage and even colored light, these pools of energy can be accessed and allowed to flow freely again.
Our licensed professionals are extensively trained in all of these methods and the following is a list of our unique Chinese Medicine offerings.

*Aura-Soma™ Color Light Pen - A next generation of Color Light Therapy, applied to specific acupuncture points and meridians, bathing you in dual-colored light containing plant and crystal energies.  A powerful alternative to acupuncture needles.

COSMETIC ACUPUNTURE 

involves inserting very fine, hair-like needles into the face in addition to synergistic points on the body. These needles initiate cellular regeneration as well as collagen and elastin production, a process that continues to occur long after the needles have been removed. The skin’s elasticity is increased achieving a more youthful and regenerated appearance. Our Meridian Facial rehydrates, tones, lifts and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Our unique facial acupuncture offerings provide restorative and regenerative benefits to the skin to create a more youthful appearance while also promoting overall health and wellbeing.  Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial Renewal is a truly holistic alternative to more invasive techniques.  In our 60-minute Meridian Facial, we incorporate gua sha massage techniques and LED lights that invigorate blood flow and plump up the muscles of the face.  Our convenient 30-minute Quick Plump sessions allow you to address stubborn areas and enhance results in between your more comprehensive treatments

MERIDIAN QUICK PLUMP | 30 minutes | $ 60 BOOK

A 30-minute targeted treatment.  Relax in our Meridian Sound Lounge while needles are placed in a single area of focus such as“11’s”, frown lines, crows feet or sagging jowels.  This express session will enhance collagen and elastin production and reduce the appearance of deep or superficial lines.  Also, an excellent add-on to any of our facials. 
RECOMMENDED FREQUENCY:  1 to 2 times per week
                                                                        

MERIDIAN FACIAL | 60 minutes | $ 200 BOOK

CUPPING THERAPY

Cupping is a 5,000 year-old therapy that uses suction cups to invigorate and remove stagnation in muscle tissue, organs, skin and fascia. 

  • When applied to the face, it can increase blood flow and promote the production of new collagen and elastin fibers as well as remove unhealthy patterns in the skin (i.e. wrinkles and frown lines!)

  • Cupping is remarkably effective at changing the look of cellulite by releasing the adhesions between the fat and fascia, allowing the body to metabolize the fat more easily.

  • Sore muscles and long-standing pain and stiffness can be alleviated in just a single cupping session.  Pain is a sign that there is deoxygenated blood and toxins stored in the tissue and cupping is the fastest way to invigorate the tissue and increase proper circulation to the area.

  • Chronic and acute lung conditions can be improved when cups are applied over the upper back.  The cups can assist in opening up the energy to the lungs and promote easier breathing.

    FUSION MASSAGE

    A  MASSAGE AND CUPPING COMBINATION - A powerful and effective combination that reduces stubborn, chronic, long-standing aches and pains and toxic build-up in the body.   Cupping is a 5,000 year- old healing technique that uses suction cups to break up stagnant energy in the tissues and blood.

    QUICK CUPS 

    THE CUPPING FACIAL - Cupping is an ancient massage technique that stimulates blood circulation, builds collagen and drains the lymph nodes, resulting in a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients to the tissue. After a facial cleansing, cupping is done to avtivate the enzyme exfoliant. Merging exfoliation and massage reduces time without compromising results. To finish, skin specific serums are applied, after which skin is hydrated and protected. This treatment renders the face lifted, slim and taught and also helps with puffy eyes. The perfect pre-event treatment.
